This first day of the market was all about ROCK AROUND THE BLOCK! To celebrate, last night the show distributor, Zeal TV, hosted a dinner at this fantastic, very French restaurant called Felix (see photo). Various nets & producers came by to talk Block‚ and everyone just loves, loves, loves the show.
A group of us then ran off to the Martinez Hotel for the official opening of MIPTV. Alas, I must admit to you all that I have not been in tip-top Sandy-party-like-a-rock-star mode, as I have had the most horrendous cold & cough, the worst in years. At dinner, I was told that lots of cognac and cigarettes were a good cure for any flu or cold. Guess what? Wrong! And this morning, Viva la Piha didn’t feel so hot.
Nevertheless, WOW continued kicking bum-bum at the convention today. CAMP MICHAEL JACKSON has a huge amount of interest and, as always, every buyer I meet with says the WOW catalogue is like a breath of fresh air.
Must run! Off to some pre-dinner drinks at the Carlton Hotel and hopefully some scandalous activity later?
[Ed FYI: Camp Michael Jackson is being codirected by Q Allan Brocka, who currently has the gay romantic comedy Eating Out playing in selected theaters.]
